Happy Friday, bullet point addition

This week has just been one of those weeks, so we’re resigning ourselves to bullet points. Here are the hits and the misses for this week including a few lessons learned:

  • My mother didn’t kill me for this, and even said some of them made her laugh out loud.
  • I got a steroid shot in my thumb and it hurt, but I rocked the post-steroid blood sugars (till two days later).
  • I learned the threshold of my brother’s disgustingness extends beyond what I had earlier believed.
  • I have started a countdown to see my niece and nephews at Thanksgiving.
  • I’m trying to convince a particular friend that pride should not stand in the way of a Thanksgiving celebration.
  • I spiked to 300 in the middle of the night twice this week for no clear or obvious reason.
  • I realized how to forgive and pray for those who have hurt me.
  • Hitting on a priest will get you nowhere. With him or Him
  • I tried to wear blue makeup for blue Fridays, but failed miserably. Mostly because I don’t look like this.
  • I have (mostly) narrowed down what I will be making for Thanksgiving.
  • (For the aforementioned friend), that menu includes mac-n-cheese, strawberry cheesecake bites and Nutella cheesecake pumpkin muffins (I’ll share the recipe).
  • When you think no one else out there understands, Google Hangout will tell you you’re wrong.
  • #DevilDog didn’t get kicked out of doggy daycare this week!
  • Technically, Barkley did though.
  • I loved the JDRF ad that ran in the NYTimes and the Washington Post, and I enjoyed Dr. Aaron Kowalski’s explanation of it. But I completely respect the opinions of those who didn’t like it.
  • I do NOT like the new JDRF logo, but I think most people do.
  • Portion control is not easy when you live alone.
  • I really want LSU to win tomorrow. (Beat Bama!)
  • I found out I get to meet new friends like this one at Christmas and enjoy the company of old friends like this one and this one.
  • Pinterest is equally addictive and fantastic.
  • Sometimes, virtual hugs aren’t enough and you have to be strong enough to ask for more.

All in all, it was a good week.

    I’m with you on the JDRF logo. It looks like a transportation company. Next stop: cure land!

    You list made me smile too. :)

    So if the friend won’t come to Thanksgiving, I will. Or you could just mail me some of the Nutella pumpkin cheesecake goodness. 😀

    So, two things: (a) You *do* totally look like the smokey eye chick. I’ve met you, after all. And (b) can Lisa and I come over for Thanksgiving dinner? Nutella and cheesecake!? Love.

    The updated list made me laugh, but I agree with Sara on the entire eye roll thing.
